Boston sitters may set their own hourly rate.
How do I set my own hourly rates?
- You can submit new hourly rates at any time via our rate update form
- If you choose not to update your hourly rate, it will stay at the usual $16/hr rate
What should my rate be?
That’s up to you! We recommend using your best judgement, and if you’re uncomfortable with a change, leave your rate at $16.
How do I change my hourly rate?
Boston sitters can submit adjustments to their hourly rate by filling out this form. This will determine what rates parents see when booking you, and beginning on January 29, 2018, updates will go into effect every Monday. Please set your rate in increments of 50 cents (i.e. $XX.50 or $XX.00, not $XX.85). Initial rate adjustments must be submitted by Wednesday, January 24. Following rate adjustments must be submitted by Sunday each week in order to take effect on Monday. If you do not request an adjustment, your current hourly rate will remain.
All sittings are still subject to the typical Chime fee percentage, and as usual, you keep 100% of your tips!
NOTE: Adjusting your service area will reset your hourly rate to $16, so if you would like to adjust your service area and keep your new rate, we ask that you contact our Customer Success team to request a rate update before making service area adjustments. This way we can be sure to keep your requested rate following your service area update!
